I like how they reused a roulette wheel from CSI and turned it into the ship.

The drive section looks inspired from a Klingon D7 Battle Cruiser.

^ I was going to say the same thing, this looks like when they used to combine model kits to create new classes for the shows

isn't this going to be on CBS online exclusively?

Thought I read somewhere that they were using it as an enticement to get people to pay for the CBS app.

I don't understand why we can't progress beyond the TNG/DS9/Voyager timeframe. Between the movies, Enterprise, and now this it's just too much re-hashing for me.

^^ Rehashing old canon is easier than coming up with new canon. I mean, we already have Sarek and young Spock in the show

bttt I guess.

First episode airs the 24th (tomorrow at 830 pm) on CBS. It'll end in a cliff hanger with the 2nd episode online via CBS All Access (paid service)

I still have strong reservations about this show (main character being Spock's adopted sisted, redesign of klingons, yet another prequel etc), but we'll see how it goes.

I don't care how good it is. If the only way to watch the second episode (or future episodes) is through a paid CBS streaming service, the show is doomed to fail.

I was really impressed with the visuals and thought it was good enough start. The whole history with Michael and the Vulcans and Klingons is kinda cliche, but let's see if they do something interesting with it down the line. Mutiny on the first episode is dumb, but eh.

I enjoyed the first episode, will watch the 2nd tomorrow.

A couple thoughts:

The intro was a bit odd, sending the captain and first officer down, the whole federation symbol thing, etc.

Not a fan of the opening credits, the music is okay (better than Ent) by I want to see spaceship beauty shots!

Not a fan of redoing Klingons again, this rendition seems a hell of a lot more religious that previous ones and just looks odd. Like if I hadn't known better, I wouldn't have guessed they were klingons.

The species of the 2nd Officer (guy who Doug Jones plays) is silly. He's a prey species who senses death? And he's timid as hell and wants to run away constantly (even when defending Federation space), why is he in Starfleet?

Having the main character be the adopted daughter of Sarek seems so shoehorned in to have some kind of connection to the original series. Also, why is her name Michael?

I agree, the mutiny was dumb, especially on the first episode.

Overall though, I think this series has some potential. The visuals were great, the acting seems good, but do we really want to see more Klingon/Federation drama?

Yeah why would you breed your livestock to have a sense of impending doom. Would make a lot more sense to get rid of that so that they just hang out until you decide to eat them.

I got a jar jar vibe from the science officer, hope they fix that.

Re Michael name, it’s hundreds of years in the future, I can accept names have changed genders, this happens in the real world too.

The new kilngons are weird but I think they’ve established a coherent vision for how the species works, I trust they have some reason for rebooting them that makes sense.

New Klingons are dumb, science officer is a bitch, I don't understand why the Michael chick made such a weak mutiny attempt.

Orville is better

this is going to be good. different feel for a trek series. the first two episodes didn't even show the main ship right? just a prologue in a way.

oh and michael...

Finished episode 1:

-only 3 members of the Shenzhou crew apparently have anything approaching a personality, because those were the only ones they had talk
-God damn it, the Klingons as they were in The Next Generation were perfect, why change their look again?
-yeah, those actions at the end of the episode deserve more of a court martial than anything Captain Kirk ever did

if anyone hasn't started this, just skip the 2-episode premier and start with the 3rd episode. the "previously on" intro is all you need to know from the premier, and you don't have to watch all the dumb parts.

^^ Agree with this. Really would've been better calling that a prologue instead of the start of the series proper. I could see they wanted to create empathy for Michael Burnham, but, they made her look like an idiot.
